This "group" of agarics (subg. Phlegmacium with viscid pileus and bulbous stipe bases is widespread in the Northern Hemisphere especially under Fagaceae. They are routinely found in California, USA along the coast and the Sierra Nevada foothills associated with oaks and associated Ericaceae. These two collections were found on Cerro de la Muerte under large shrubs of Comarostaphylis arbutoides. Dr. J. Ammirati (Seattle) has the identifications well in hand.
